Chelsea Handler on ConanOn tonight’s Conan, Chelsea Handler visits Conan O’Brien and breaks some pretty shocking news. When O’Brien asks about the news that Handler is leaving her hugely successful late-night series Chelsea Lately on E!, Handler confirms and then says, “Yeah, I’m retiring.” But it’s not as bad as it sounds. O’Brien responds, “You’re not going to retire!.”

“Well, I’m just done with that show,” Handler says with a laugh. “I just have to move on. I get very bored. I’ve been there a long time— seven great years. I had a great time but I’m ready to take a little bit of a break.” And what about the rumor that Handler will bring a late-night style show to Netflix? “No, I haven’t made any decisions about what I’m doing,” Handler tells O’Brien. “Everything that’s printed about me is a lie…everything’s an option.”

The veteran comedian is currently in the middle of a 31-date stand-up comedy tour in support of her fifth book, Uganda Be Kidding Me…., which continues in Kansas City on May 2. Handler will leave Chelsea Lately after her contract expires at the end of this year. Although the New York Post reports that Handler is very close to closing a deal with streaming video service Netflix, Handler says it’s simply not true.
